What do you wear in a hurricane, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in New York City since Hurricane Donna in 1960?
Well, not a hat, I can tell you that much. So I’m glad I was able to get these pictures of myself for “How I Wear My: Hat” before Hurricane Sandy came and I was glued to the TV watching news of the storm. I never think of myself as a hat person but I may have to reconsider because I love how the addition of a hat can complete a look.
Just not in a hurricane.
As you already know, parts of New York, Connecticut, and especially New Jersey have been devastated because of Hurricane Sandy. The words of Fiorello LaGuardia, who was mayor of New York City from 1934 to 1945, are once again so true. He said the two qualities New Yorkers would need to get through the Great Depression were Patience and Fortitude. We will need these qualities in droves to get through the tough days and months ahead.
To tell you the truth, I am pretty depressed because of all the storm destruction I’ve heard about and seen, but these beautiful ladies in hats help cheer me up. Aren’t they lovely?
|Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget), gorgeous in her sun hat while in Kauai!|
|Catherine of Not Dressed As Lamb. I love this look!|
|I adore Catherine’s sweater. It makes me think of the old show “Love, American Style!”|
|Sara of Searching for Saraspunza. I especially like the brim of this straw hat!|
|Jeannie of Gracefully 50 looking smokin’ hot in her hat! And her shades are off!|
|Hang of POUM! La Mode. I love every bit of this look.|
|Could Hang look any more chic? (The answer is no.)|
Do join Adrienne and me for the last roundup of the year for “How I Wear My: Plaid.” It will help you get in the holiday mood and plaid is just plain fun! Send a picture to either of us by December 3, 2012.
And stop by to see what other looks in a hat Adrienne has put together.
Thanks to the fine foxes who participated this month.
P.S. If you can, won’t you make a small donation to either the Salvation Army or the Greater New York chapter of the American Red Cross? They’ve both been out in hard hit areas of all five boroughs and Long Island, giving clothes, water and hot meals to New Yorkers in need.
